    New g-shock wanted. Which one to buy?

    Hello people!


    I'm looking to buy a new g-shock and I need a little help. I've been looking at a few models and the ones that stick out are(random order): GX-56, GW-9010 Mudman, G-9100 Gulfman, GD-100. Now, I don't care about solar, waveceptor and all that. All I want is a loud enough alarm(not to wake me up, I know it won't do that, but to remind me of different events during the day). So, if you guys own one or more of the above models, here's what I'd like to know:

    a.which one of them has the loudest alarm?
    b.just in case you own the G-9000 Mudman too, how does the alarm of any of the above listed watches compare to muddy's alarm?


    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to the forum.

    In G-9000 alarm is noticeably louder than in GX-56. I don't have other models to compare.

    Thanks, Piowa. So the GX-56 is rather bad. Hoping someone might advice me with respect to the others. I should also mention that I have a g-7700(probably one of the loudest g-shocks) so I don't need advice as to what the loudest g is. I'm only interested in a comparison between those 4(5) watches.

    I have a ton of different models, but I don't really "depend" on the alarams, although I do use them. So if I have time later, I will try to setup some alarms on some of my different modules, and report back with some info.

    Same boat as Will. I have them except for the 9010. I have not set/heard the alarm on any of them. Will look into tonight if your question hasn't been answered.
    Yes, I am OCD. What gave it away?

    I have all four with the exception of my G9010 Mudman which is the non atomic but otherwise identical to the GW9010. After testing all four at the same time I found the G9100 Gulfman blew the GX56 and the 9010 Mudman away but was only very slightly louder than the GD100. So, the Gulfman wins but only by a very small margin over the GD100.

    Edit : Just tested the G9000 Mudman next to the Gulfman, guess what? it kicks the Gulfman's bottom.

    So here's the final order in terms of loud to quiet

    G9000 Mudman
    G9100 Gulfman
    GD100
    G9010 Mudman
    GX56

    Hope this helps.

    The way I see it, if you will be awake and will be using them for reminders; you will notice all of them upon ringing unless you work in an extremely loud environment.

    In that case, I would go with which ever looks the best for you or is best for your wallet :)

    Thanks for the list! So I'll probably have to reconsider. Guess I'll buy another good old Mudman instead of the Gulfman. Plus the muddy's got 20 sec alarm. Yes, I guess you've set me on the right way, thanks again!
